Double Doughnuts

With a low of 6ºF and a high of 20ºF (-14ºC and -7ºC respectively) yesterday, Hu-dad had a fire in the fireplace and encouraged us to hang out inside the house as much as we wanted. The older dogs certainly took advantage, but a couple of youngsters insisted on practicing double doughnuts.

And what are double doughnuts, you ask?

    Mom sez: Oh my, I think that’s the first time in a L-O-N-G time I can remember seeing Ty lying motionless! Does he do that often? Does this mean he may be showing signs of “growing up”, finally? And sweet Frankie, well, what can I say? That is such a nice picture of the two of them out in the Sibe Quentin exercise yard!

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
